These were a little bit of an impulse buy for me, but I needed to cross the line into free shipping and I am a sock enthusiast, so...I bought these because of they're mid-height, a rad color, and they're Assos! I've had them for a few months, and they feel GREAT. Very breathable, good for hot weather. Construction is outstanding, with a flawless weave that has a strong resiliency and texture. Toe seam and heel are flawless. Nice bit of extra compression in the foot arch. My only gripe is they're easy to snag on a rough toenail, so be careful!
It's really a fall weather item, much more of a compression fit different fabric than my other summer socks, more like the Bonka. The red is certainly bright but that color was on sale and I'd buy another pair if these didn't wear so well - but they will.
